The tennis pro, 37, arrived on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City in a yellow Versace dress adorned with pink flowers and a pair of neon Nike sneakers underneath. The Reddit cofounder, 36, wore a white tuxedo jacket with black pants, a matching bow tie and custom leather Atoms shoes.

Williams was named one of the evening’s five co-chairs, joining Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, Lady Gaga, Harry Styles and Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele. As part of their duties, the cohosts will shake hands with the fundraising gala’s 500-plus attendees before heading inside.

The couple last attended the Met Gala in May 2017, less than two weeks after the athlete announced that she was pregnant with her first child. She and Ohanian welcomed daughter Olympia that September and married in New Orleans the following month.

Williams credited her husband with being her support system after she suffered two months of postpartum complications. “I was so happy to change diapers, but on top of everything she was going through, the feeling of not being able to help made it even harder,” he told Vogue in January 2018.
